    You might try a Gigabyte GA-K8N-SLI if you think you might SLI sometime. If you don't think so, an ASUS A8N5X might work for you. There is only a little price gap, though, so you might try the Gigabyte. Then if you get a 7800GT like IH8PunkRok said or an even better card, you could SLI in the future or now.
    Hoping to help.

    You will have to pick another processor. You chose one with socket AM2, the newest from AMD. Your motherboard choice supports socket 939. Maybe like this instead?
